[Spice-devel] grab mouse in html5 client

Ciao Davide,

I also think that getting two cursors is confusing.
I would change this behaviour by removing the guest (remote) pointer not
the client (local) one.
But if you want to remove the guest one, it's pretty straight forward: in
the file spice.css, line 72, add "cursor: none".
